The Pumpkin Themed Taste Test of 2014 (Breakfast Items)

This is a summary of the Pumpkin Spice taste test i had Last fall of 2014. it was the first time i had noticed that there was a wide variety of pumpkin flavored items available and i went wild trying out everything i can get my hand on. (Special note: all information is from an excel sheet i had created and all pictures are from what i could find online to best represent what the item looked like.)

Please forgive my descriptions of the flavor intensity, I know my overview is very short and to the chase, but my old rating scale is a bit broad.  I can explain bit on what my rating scale means:
Perfect: most wonderful, delightful item
Very Good: I was very pleased with the item and more likely bought it again
Good: It tasted good, and I enjoyed sharing it with other people
Surprisingly good: I thought it would be bad at first but was impressed with the item
OK: the food is nothing too special, alright to eat but I would not go out of my way to purchase it again
Meh:  the food was nothing special, not good, nor bad, just flys under the radar of edible but I would not accept it if someone gave it to me for free.
Bad: it was terrible and I either trashed it or returned the item to the store.
NO: just bad, so bad I would say no and walk away
